NASHVILLE  — Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam wants to help veterans seeking a higher education.

He has formed a task force to evaluate how to best serve those seeking a certificate or degree beyond high school.

The task force is part of the governor’s initiative to raise the number of Tennesseans with a certificate or degree beyond high school from where it stands today at 32 percent to 55 percent by the year 2025.

Members of the panel will speak to higher education leaders, veterans, advocacy groups and others and present recommendations to the governor in June.
